human being. >> one of further fact jerry nest was linda's nationality. she is a british subject. the anti death penalty group set up a mock -- the british consulate has made linda his priority. the most important thing for me -- the british government has a policy wherever british nationals overseas are facing death penalty, but we are trying to support them. we oppose the death penalty. her defense lawyer had plenty of opportunities to defend her nationality. they could have happened at her arrest. it did not happen. if it is one of the most important things we need to focus on, the fact that she did not get the support she needed. >> being british could be the only lifeline so late. do you feel british? >> i am british. it is not something i can wash off. >> i am british and i am proud to be british. [inaudible] >> i miss my daughter and i miss my grandson. i am denied the privilege of seeing them. i cannot hold him. >> she is more than just my mom, she is my best friend. we talked about everything. i doubt i would have been able to -- it did not make any sense. >> this case i
exists, not a god that concerns himself with the fates and actions of human beings. do you agree with that? >> i do. that's exactly what was said in a different kind of language. when you ask about what was there before the beginning, that's a very relevant question. you know, when leonard answered it, i would like to also address it because you say, what created god? or what created the nothingness? if nothing is outside of space time, it is actually not in space time. space time are an activity of that nothingness. behavior of that nothingness. as are all laws of nature, but the laws of nature are not inscribed somewhere in a book. they exist in the consciousness of mathematicians. no equation will ever make the universe work. the equations merely describe the behavior of the universe. so you know, when i think of mathematics i think of it actually as the language of god, and when i think of physicists, like leonard and stephen hawking, i think that's god explaining god to god using mathematics basically. and you know, stephen really acknowledged -- i think leonard will acknowl
. we have probably all heard there have been 150 human beings who have been exonerated after being sent to death row. that means 150 people in this country were tried and convicted and sentenced to death and then exonerated face on mostly scientific evidence. some served years. some serve a eighth. we hear about those stories. what we do not often hear about is how the justice system was wrong in other ways that affect everyday people throughout this country, and that is what we are going to be talking about today. we are talking about failures, like of when when a person is wy tried because they have a name -- wrongly accused because they have a name similar to someone else. we try about 250 cases a year, and in about half of those cases, there are acquittals, and what that means is a series agree about half the time -- juries agree about half the time with our assessment of the case. we know about the failures we have heard about in san francisco of late, including a technician in the police department crime lab, who was stealing drugs from the lab. we do not know for what time, but t
raised by the three words seize that weather. that we as human beings can help other human beings make their circumstances better, depend themselves and maintain human dignity in the face of onslaughts that come from every angle. we are blessed to do this work. we should never be ashamed to be public defenders. we should always be proud of what it is that we do for people and in fact, what they return to us. we are made better by the work that we do and may god bless all of your efforts. thank you. [applause] >> thank you, jose. the event today is also sponsored by the california attorneys for criminal justice. i also want to especially thank the rosenberg foundation and executive director tim solard who provided a grant to make this possible so thank you so much the rosenberg foundation and of course i want to thank all the volunteers who worked so hard to make this event happen today. now i'm very excited to introduce our keynote speaker. our keynote speaker is and was the first "lady lawyer" in california. it's true. because when she decided that she wanted to become a lawyer, there
, there are ordinary, decent human beings who would like peace, but no longer believe it's possible. that's why grassroots efforts to try to strengthen a peaceful core in each society, coupled with the powerful diplomatic efforts of critical, otherwise these two peoples face a dark future. >> if the religious extremes are who seem to be com nateing the political conversation right now, and the factor that most people are between those two extremes, when you go to that region of the world, you meet those people, we don't hear a great deal over here about those people. we don't hear about the internal dialogue that is taking place in those places. why do you think we don't? >> that's a good question. i wish that we did. i think that a lot of times in public media, we do focus too much on governments, and on extremism. it's not as popular and spicy to see that there are israelis and palestinians working together and talking together, working for peace. it's just not as exciting for people to see that as there is to see there is this person on this side and this person on that side fighting each ot
, that alien, would have to really kind of duplicate what we have here on earth in human beings. correct? >> it might be about the same size we are, but i don't think it would duplicate us in it's thinking or looking at reality. that would be the fascinating thing about finding it. >> i'm talking about the structure of the brain, perhaps? >> i don't think we know what an alien brain would look like. >> don't you make the case that the alien would have to proximate a human being from earth? an earth like country snur indeed. likely to be about the same size and the reason it has to do with fundamental laws of physics. it's not possible to have an intelligence that much smaller than the human brain. because there isn't enough complexity and not possible to have one that is enormously larger than the human brain because the slow speed of communication. what we have if you have a much larger entity, is a community of a bunch of separate thinking organisms because the thinking has to be done in a fairly small volume to have the repit id of the communication. so in that respect it's probably g

the desire of human beings to create a form to deal with emergencies that inevitably come. but even as we confront immediate challenges, we must also summon the foresight to look beyond them and consider what are we trying to build over the long term? what is the world that awaits us when today's battles are brought to an end. and that is what i would like to talk about with the remainder of my time today. one of the first actions of this general assembly was to adopt a universal declaration of human rights in 1948. that declaration begins by stating that recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, faith and justice in the world. the idea is a simple one. that freedom, justice and peace for the world must begin with freedom, justice and peace in the lives of individual human beings. and if you're the united states, this is a matter of moral and pragmatic necessity. as robert kennedy said, the individual man, the child of god is the touch stone of value. all society, groups, the state exist for
is rules and regulations. but we respect everybody's faith. we deal with people as human beings. what their faith is way down the line for us. >> i'm told some people call them fundamentalists, evangelicals believe so strongly in their christianity that they believe islam is wrong, it's 's even evil because it's a wrong faith. s and it should be, if not denied, maybe more than denied, it should be repressed. >> to me, i don't have the right to judge a heart of another human being. the people across the street from us in memphis tell us they worship the one true god. i don't have a right to judge that. i can't look inside their heart and see what's they're going. i take it at face value. >> your thoughts on that? >> it doesn't water my down the th and my f my fai belief to concede to somebody else their faith as they see fit. as long as they don't impose it on me. you need to recognize the fundamental christian virtue of humility. we often forget that. pastor jones is ignoring that principle. seems to me he's following bad theology, bad churchmanship, and bad citizenship. >> why are we
or being a compassionate human beings, i have a compassionate group of human beings around me. i don't know everything, and i rely on those people to sometimes have a vision that i cannot see because of ego or because of such conscious or unconscious, would ever read is that is going against it. going against it. one of the things that i think about obama, and i still believe, at this moment in our evolution as people, that collectively it is about who we choose to represent us. it is about the words they speak and the message they bring and what it is that they reflect and emulate, and that those people, when we cannot necessarily rely on what our spirit says, can help us identify and understand what is resonating in us, even when it is uncomfortable. i have been lucky. since the very beginning of my career, from the moment i work with michael jackson until now, i have had the same manager who has always been on a course of enlightenment and consciousness and has been a great source of strength, and he has run at me with people i can count on. tavis: you mentioned obama, and i will get bac

as a human being to come down and experience it. i don't say that as a representative of an organization to come down. i don't say that as a community leader to come down. i say that as a human being that wants to experience something ennobling and enlightning and remarkable that is thousands of homeless people; nameless faceless people. folks you drive by and folks you step over, folks you simply turn your back oftentimes to for no negative reason but because you are moving on with your life and to come here and find a sense of hope and dignity. thousands of volunteers try to connect with them in a real way. people who have their feet washed which is a remarkable thing and have a pe diatryst there to help solve problems with their feet. we have folks volunteering and giving away eye exams and eye glasses. folks with wheel chairs that can't afford to have their chairings fixed. this is like a mechanic's station for wheel chairs. having seen those folks get those wheel chairs f. fixed. we had a dental exam on site. we connected all the needs of the individuals. daniel took a look at that

. this is one of those places in the world where human beings don't matter very much. the important inhabitants belong to other specie it is, marine birds and mammals. perhaps that's what gives the islands their magic. even people who live here most of the time are always visitors. >> every day that i'm here i feel it's a privilege to be here. and to learn from the wildlife here. but also just to be on the island because i realize that the public can't come here. and i am seeing an amazing place and amazing things happen out here. and it is a privilege. >> reporter: michelle hesler a biologist lives here alternating five weeks on the island and two weeks off. she studies bird and animal populations for the u.s. fish and wildlife service. >> i want to look at you. >> reporter: other visitors are more temporary. elsa jenson is a doctor who volunteers for three weeks every summer helping keep track of bird populations. for certain species, the majority of the world's population breeds here on the islands. it isn't exactly a vacation. the island is usually cold and always windy and the work is nev

tells a story of how he dragged himself up from the depths of depravity. this is what human beings can do with god. if you look at a cat or a camel or a kangaroo and you come back and look at it a year later it's still the same cat, camel and kangaroo. but human beings guided by god can convert themselves and transform themselveses from shattered, relics into the great leaders they are today. i think what you revealed was that what is true for people is true for a nation as well. as long as they are going to be guided by god and with the bible as a roadmap. >> glenn: what about people who are atheists? anybody want to take that one? >> if you look at every person, every person was made in the image of god whether they like it or not or whether they know it or not. something used the way it was designed. if you buy a mercedes benz and you pay whatever you pay for it and when you drive off the lot, the guy says only put high, unleaded gas in it. you won't put sand in it. you will believe it's the best for the car. if you put sand in it, it will break. god said i made you in my image, you
